A picturesque century home in the quaint village of Alvinston. This 100 year old home is on the east side of town with a farm immediately behind us. Alvinston is a unique village nestled in the middle of major cities - 50 minutes from London and Chatham, 40 minutes from Sarnia, and 20 minutes from Strathroy and Petrolia.
“This was a really lovely BnB in an OLD house in a beautiful small town Ontario setting. Margaret, the host, was easy to contact and very responsive. The booking and exchange of information were perfect. We traveled in December in Ontario, on a cold, damp day and the house was well lit, easy to find and toasty warm when we arrived late in the evening. We had everything that we needed and more. The host has thought of everything! Hope to have the chance to stay with you again.”
Tiny, cozy, rustic treehouse at the end of a rugged one-kilometre footpath: sleeping platform and woodstove inside; porch and hammock outside. Campfire pit with tripod grill on the riverbank. Appeals to leave-no-trace hikers/canoeists who look for time off the grid, who understand how to function sustainably and respectfully there, and enjoy being self-sufficient and resilient. Pricing: Weekend and holiday rates are higher than weekday.
“A wonderful getaway. Everything was as described. Sleeping bag was a great suggestion for winter guests. Lawrene was fantastic in responding to us and making us feel welcomed. She was super accommodating to reschedule our trip last minute when the initial date showed a forecast of heavy rain and flooding. She even ensured that we weren’t charged for the new rate. Now that we have experienced the winter wonderland, we are very much looking forward to a summer time experience! Things we would do differently when we return: make sure our dog has conquered his fear for bridge and steep stairs lol would pack lighter so less trips carrying things back/forth to the car (about 1km per description) - and more time to enjoy the beautiful scenery! Love the riverbank right next to the treehouse. The treehouse was small but nice and cozy for two. Bandaids, books, games, tea/instant coffee and extra tap water for emergency was a thoughtful touch. You will be completely off grid and not see a single soul during the stay - it’s fantastic. Thank you, Lawrene and Harry. - Rebecca and David”
Our bunkie is ready to welcome guests to our alpaca farm. It is winterized and you can stay year round. The property is 10 acres - 8 acres belong to the alpacas. Our house is on 2 acres with a big back yard, where the bunkie is located, which we are happy to share with visitors and guests. We offer alpaca walks as part of our farm business. The sunset walks are set aside for Airbnb guests and you are more than welcome to book these at a discounted rate.
“Yvonne and Steve go out of their ways to provide such a unique experience so close to London. We had the opportunity to take a walk with the alpacas before sunset where Yvonne told us many interesting things about the animals. The cabin was very clean, cozy, and comfortable. The wifi was also very good, further enhancing our experience. In the morning, Yvonne and Steve provided coffee and tea, and told us many interesting stories about how they became owners of an alpaca farm. All in all, if you're looking for a relaxing night and are interested in learning more about alpacas, llamas, or dogs, this is the place to go!”
